Mega Minor Torch

This summer I purchased a Nortel Mega Minor lampworking torch.  I used the profit from my glass fusing sales and set up a very tiny workstation in the laundry room with the propane outside.  There isn't much space next to my bonnie glo kiln, barely just enough.

Making a bead

I don't have any bead making experience, but how hard could it be.  Well it has turned out to be very easy to make a bead and very difficult to make a bead that is symmetrical.

It is also pretty awesome.
